Clan Na Gael’s Fall Play

Cast: Steven Bennett, Anne Marie Donohue, Jack Frum, Jennifer Healey, Valerie Huegel, Sara Kelly, Noeleen Nelson, Eamon Speer, Marie Stehle, Byrne White and Erin Williams

This mysterious ghost story is set in 1936 and takes place in “Cliff End” an old manor house overlooking the Irish sea. The house was recently bought by the Fitzgerald’s, a sister and brother who had heard stories of disturbances but they are undaunted as they begin renovating and settling in. Their housekeeper, Lizzie Flynn, however, quickly becomes disenchanted when her cat goes missing and her strong sense of unnatural occurrences foreshadows what’s to come.

The production will be reminiscent of the time and will be presented entirely in shades of black & white.  Show Dates are November 16th, 17th, 18th & 19th

The Poets Rebellion takes you to Dublin where a couple, tourists from America stop into the local pub, excited and enthusiastic about their day exploring the city. The bartender adds his thoughts, to theirs, on the events of the 1916 Uprising. Another patron, joins in, wanting his opposing views to be heard. The two men begin one-upping each other. Others coming into the pub dismiss the argument as “more of the same”. It becomes apparent that only those who were involved in the Uprising could speak to facts. Or could they?

Admission for the Poet’s Rebellion is $15.00.
